Being prepared is the greatest safety precaution you can take on a tour!

Ortovox has been promoting safety on the mountain for more than 30 years now; but you are the only one who can reduce your risk through your actions!
Ortovox Safety Academy has developed a training concept in which experts pass their knowledge on to you. 
Ortovox has selected Alagna, the Freeride Paradise, as perfect place for this kind of training; the base camp is Pastore Hut (Alpe Pile 1575 m asl), in the heart of the highest Natural Park of Europe, where you can admire the most incredible view of the Monte Rosa south side.
Tour and Training basic - 2 days

Programme you will learn the basic safety information about the behaviour to keep off-piste and the planning of a tour; we'll give you an overview of equipment, snow, avalanche and tactical evaluation methods, to help you plan a safe day on the mountain. You can also test the gained knowledge by a one day tour with our Alpine Guides.

By practicing with the latest Ortovox safety equipment, you will learn the essential rules for an avalanche search and rescue action, as well as the procedure to take in the case of an avalanche.

The offer includes theoretical and practical training, testing of Ortovox safety technology, a day tour with Alpine Guide, transfers from Alagna to the Pastore hut.
